How to get SpeedLink SL-8850 to work in Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty)

First see that your USB sound card is plugged in.

Then you need to edit your audio settings. Open your terminal and write this:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Now add the following line to the end:

blacklist snd_intel8x0

Save the file and close it.

Open your alsa-base file:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

and add the following under #autoloader aliases:

install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe snd_usb_audio
#install sound-slot-1 /sbin/modprobe snd_intel8x0

And find the following lines and comment them

#options snd-usb-audio index=-2
#options snd-usb-usx2y index=-2

Save the file and close it.

Now reboot your computer and after that your USB sound card should work by default.

    Hi!!

    Thanks for the tip, but it doesn’t seem to work for with my Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). If you have any further recommendation let us know.

    Hello!

    Thank you very much, it perfectly worked on my Debian, without commenting

    #options snd-usb-audio index=-2
    #options snd-usb-usx2y index=-2

    which were not in th alsa-base file.

    Wow, this post is OLD! But your trick worked very well for me on 12.04. Thanks for that. However there is one little problem: I want to use Virtualbox with a win7 guest for Symfy but i can´t get the audio to work for this. I already tried the different audio driver settings for the box but no success. Maybe you have any suggestions…

    Cheers

    Chris

      Worked for me with 12.04 as well. Watch out, the line:

      options snd-usb-usx2y index=-2

      may exist twice, you need to comment them both out.
